Starting in 2010, we have been developing a small mixed farm in beautiful Lunenburg County Nova Scotia.
Our focus has been on naturally re-invigorating the land with long-term approaches to soil and eco-system health. To this end the farm uses:
- holistic managed grazing with mixed animal species
(cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, guineas and
honey bees at present)
- organic and biodynamic applications in the vegetable
gardens
- little to no machinery. The garden utilizes a permanent
bed system and hand tools.

Work opportunities largely focus on planting and managing the garden. In 2015 we may also be working on a barn building project using traditional timber frame construction methods.
We have a very basic 1 bedroom apartment available here in a separate building for housing.
Work opportunities exist from late April through November.
Please contact us with any questions or for more information.
Thanks,
Orrin, Tracy and Oliver
